You may be entitled to receive funding to get a break, you can ask your local authority social services team for a carer’s assessment.
Social services will be able to discuss with you and assess any help required that would maintain your own health and wellbeing, and balancing your caring responsibilities. If you provide care and support to an adult friend or family member, you may be eligible for support from your local council.
This support could include being offered money to pay for things that make caring easier. Or the local authority might offer practical support, such as arranging for someone to step in when you need a short break. It could also put you in touch with local support groups so you have people to talk to.
